Kevin Nalty or “Nalts” is a legitimate “Web Celebrity” with over 800 YouTube videos that have been viewed over 75 million times. Kevin is very funny and you can check out some of Kevin’s videos here and here. Kevin is also a friend of mine and we had lunch today at Bobby Simone’s in Doylestown.
It was a beautiful day so we ate outside in their patio area. It was very pleasant and the services was great. Kevin ordered the Iberian Burger and I ordered the Roast Beef Sandwich.
Kevin got the Iberian Burger. It was a 6 ounce burger on Ciabatta Breadwith thinly sliced ham with cheese and avocado slices. The Iberian moniker comes from the thinly sliced Serrano Ham, which is very like prochuttio. The burger came with a hefty order of hand-cut Idaho French Fries. The moisture of the Melted Cheese and Avocado matched well with slightly dry ham. I liked the bits of peeling left on the fries giving them some texture. I also like my fries to be stiffer these were a little limp for me. They were well cooked and flavourful but a little stiffer would have made them perfect.It was a very good burger and gets an honourable mention on the blog’s Best of Bucks Co – Burger Top 5 List.
I ordered Roast Beef Sandwich in fact the menu described it as The Best Roast Beef Sandwich in Bucks County. The sandwich comes with Swiss Cheese, Horseradish, Demi Au Jus on a Brioche Bun with Hand Cut Fries. It was a great sandwich with my only problem being that they over grilled the bottom bun too much leaving it too charred. The key ingridents, the thinnly sliced Beef and Swiss Cheese were moist and flavourful. Strong beef flavour and tender to the bite. This version of a French Dip sandwich came with a great Demi Au Jus– great beefy taste, warm and not salty as many Au Jus end up being. The Horseradish Sauce was nice and creamy with enough heat to let you know it was horseradish. I described the fries already but they went well with the sandwich. It was a great beef sandwich, the best I have had in Bucks County. Perhaps I should start a Best of Bucks County list on Roast Beef sandwiches.
Two great sandwichs, great advice from Nalts and a chance to reconnect with a friend – Priceless. Nalts paid. LOL
